, from alternative tobacco products, we turn to alternative energy. in the world of energy, the holy grail is a power source that's inexpensive and clean with no emissions. many start-ups in silicon valley are working on it. and one of them is bloom energy. they want to put a little power plant in a box literally in your backyard. for nearly a decade, the company had been unusually secretive about its bloom box. but in february 2010, its inventor, k.r. sridhar, invited me to take a look inside his much talked about but never before seen creature. what could this power? >> this could power a u.s. home. average united states home. >> entire house? >> entire house, 24/7, 365. >> something that small? >> the way we make it is in two blocks. this is a european home. the two put together is a u.s. home. >> [chuckling] 'cause we use twice as much energy, is that what you're saying? >> yeah, and this will power four asian homes. >> so four homes in india, your native country. >> absolutely. four to six homes in our country. >> it sounds awfully dazzling. >> it is real. it works. >> he says h

of a glorious past. and some parts of the city bustle with holiday energy. but not far away: closed-up storefronts. and, further below the surface, this: a health clinic set up by the greek branch of the international aid group, doctors of the world to serve the country's newly poor. dr. nikitis kanakis is its director. >> brown: kanakis group, in fact, had to cut back some of its work in africa because of the needs at home. here in perama, unemployment tops 50% as the shrinking economy has crippled much of the local shipping industry. at the same time, the deeply indebted greek government has made dramatic budget cuts, including to health benefits. the combination has left many here without access to private or public care. and that's meant a stunning rise in disease and mortality rates. >> brown: economists, of course, speak of a different kind of necessary medicine: the kind a deeply indebted nation must take. the price for living and consuming well beyond its means for far too long. >> the medicine is necessary. it was, though, delivered very abruptly. >> brown: as a government
grassroots energy that got them out. i think college students were a big part of the win for prop 30. the fact that the current year's budget was built assuming that 30 was going to pass and that if it didn't, there were going to be trigger cuts that were going to cut into the higher education budget, really motivated a lot of students out. so, brown moves forward with that momentum. >> i really feel like that's kind of the nub of it. there was a huge component of fear involved, and well-based fear involved in the prop 30 campaign. it seemed like it finally got through to people that a tremendous percentage of the state budget is dedicated to k-12 and higher education and you can only cut so far, and we had come to that point without impacting those sections of the budget. >> what i think is so fascinating, tyche, about the passage of that, is people were scared, people voted, they decided it was worth -- even though they didn't trust the legislature, it was worth giving them more money. but we've been talking in the media for the last ten years about how california is broke, there's
that we can make a deal that keeps them from having a nuclear power program. a nuclear energy program. but i wouldn't give up on a deal that keeps them from having a nuclear weapon. that keeps them a certain distance away from having a nuclear weapon. say having some 5% enriched uranium which would still require a substantial and effort taking significant time for them to get a nuclear weapon. now under those circumstances, there have to be enough inspection continued inspection, to provide assurance that that's all that they had. i don't know whether we can reach such an agreement. i don't know what we would have to give. i don't know what else they might have to give in order to reach it. but i think that's worth a real effort to try to achieve. failing that it is possible by an attack, an air attack, to set their program back by a couple of years. on the other hand, that would make relations even more poisonous if that's possible than they are now. and it would certainly rally the iranian population in favor of a nuclear program. a nuclear weapons program. so although i don't rule
elbaradei. he is the former head of the international atomic energy agency and a nobel peace prize winner. . >> ifill: thank you for joinings us. you called egypt to reject the -- what's recan to how it turned out? >> it is going to pass but it's a sad day in my view for egypt because it is going to institutionalize stability, very polarizing charter, defines a lot of the basic human value like treatment woman of religion, freedom of expression, so i'm not sure that this is the way forward. however, we would have to take it from there and i think that we treat that constitution try to get another assembly to work, that is not polarizing but establish a consensus among the two divided fraction of the society. right now we have educated middle class on one camp and the so-called islamists and majority of the illiterate part on the other side. that's not the way we expected after the uprising. we need a charter that unifies people that not talking about controversial issues like role, freedom of expression, freedom of religion, freedom of worship but talk about science, technology, health

in the state of california right now. looking at six meters. many buildings have one meter, and yet for energy efficiency and for billing purposes, it helps to separate out the meter so you know how much each space is using. there's been a big issue about the so-called submeetering. we're going to see in a little while some new sub meetering equipment. but this is a method which is cost efficient because it allows each person to get their own bill. when you get your own bill, you know you want to keep your billow. where as if the rental unit came power and you don't pay a separate electrical bill, you might not be quite as careful. >> i believe the current public utilities commission code does require all individual residential units to be individually meters. that's for all new work. >> and for commercial, they allow separate submetering. ok. so we brought the power into the building. we're watching our fingers here. we have other ways we'll seat meters >> we have examples, a wide variety of metering and service equipment that can be chosen. the reason i wanted to show you this is to show you

issue from the panama canal treaties to the energy legislation where byrd worked tirelessly on it to get it done without a filibuster. he had the sense that the senate leader should have a special relationship with the president and that is the way the system was supposed to work. of course, the most important in for the senate leader is to make the senate work. byrd knew the senate rules better than any person that ever lived. he lived in dealing with the notion of the fear of a paralyzed senate. he wanted to think that the rules worked, but he knew that in fact jim allen of alabama had cracked the code. he had figured out how to have this filibuster so the senate could be tied up in paralyzed. robert byrd like to think you have to be an expert to do this, but it turned out you do not need to be an expert at all. a couple of senators did not know the rules and they tied the senate up. byrd struggled with the notion of how to keep the unique character of the senate without having a paralyzed? in that regard, he championed rules change. he got some done in 1979. he knew that the senate ru

all of the energy that ought to go into planning cyber war to a bunch of legal abstract debates. and the generals are sitting in the sideline saying, well, tell me what i can do. this is exactly the wrong way to treat government lawyers or maybe lawyers generally. much more effective if you say, we sat down and tell what it would take to win a cy reward. after we worked it through, the only way we can win is if we do this. is that legal? then you're going to get useful legal advice. probably they will find a way to say it is because most lawyers do not want to cause us to lose the next war. if you wait until they tell you what you can do, you will never know what you can do and you will never know how to win the cyber war. this i fear is where we are today. >> what you take of this view? >> i'm not actually sure i follow that restricting. i would like to think you for putting this together and particularly this book. so many of the issues that we have in lot today are very complex, and we have to have a way to access the broader our audience. just by the fact that this is that t
